Citizens - Kaupunkilaisia (FIN)

Finnish Marko and Somalian Yasin are today's temporary workers. These men have both ended up as citizens of Helsinki, for different reasons and unwillingly. The men hope they could provide a living for themselves and their families. They both are planning on having decent jobs and a sane everyday life. Marko wants to buy a car, and Yasin wants to get rid of his. So they meet each other and due to a misfortune, they have to adjust their plans.
